UI

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a issue where the inventory menu selector could appear on multiple slots simultaneously instead of just one.

Improved Barrier Device

The improved Barrier device is here and includes some updated artwork! Previously, the Barrier device was tied to the build grid, now it can be placed anywhere without needing to be anchored to prebuilt structures. The new Barrier device can be cut, copied, pasted and rotated, and is added to the quick bar rather than the trap inventory. Additionally, the Barrier provides improved scalability selections. If you need a small or large barrier, the scalability improvements will allow Creators to alter the size of the barrier before and after being placed.

    • The normal Grid Island now appears Green.
